Crassula argentea variegata 'Money Tree', a variegated jade plant, features oblong green and cream leaves, accented by a pop of magenta around the margins! This branching shrub is native to the rocky slopes of South Africa and Mozambique, and a fully mature ‘Money Tree’ can reach up to 8 feet wide – an incredible size for a succulent! Plants grown indoors, however, are easily size controlled, and can make a great specimen plant or an eye-catching addition to an arrangement.
Like many Crassula, ‘Money Tree’ is a rather forgiving plant to care for. A porous soil mix, bright light, and infrequent but thorough watering will have you well on your way towards a healthy and thriving succulent! Indeed, the leaves of this variety are quite ‘talkative,’ and will begin to shrivel when a good drink of water is needed.
During the winter months, expect a contented ‘Money Tree’ to produce clusters of white, star-shaped blooms. Additionally, be sure to keep this variety away from curious pets and children, as its leaves can cause minor skin irritation upon contact, or nausea if ingested.

All plants are shipped bare-root with the exception of House Plants and Plant Club Subscription Boxes. House plants and succulents will ship from separate locations and may arrive at different times. Orders ship Monday-Friday each week. Please allow 1-3 business days for your order to be processed. We ship within the USA and its outlying territories ONLY. Read our full policy here.
Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
